+Welcome to Open-Vertex.
+
+VERTEX is a hybrid HPC platform architecture where "VERTEX" control nodes
+transparently connect light-weight heterogeneous compute nodes to storage and
+system services. Open-Vertex is an open source implementation of VERTEX
+developed by HPCLinks and maintained on github.
+
+A subcomponent of Open-Vertex is the open source package called XCPU2.
+Open-Vertex contains a fork of the XCPU2 because the VERTEX objectives are
+significantly different than XCPU2 and XCPU2 maintenance has subsided.
+We are grateful to the XCPU2 developers for giving us a strong platform to
+start with.
+
+VERTEX address the challenges posed by today's Hybrid HPC systems that use
+traditional CPUs as well as compute intensive processors such as GPGPUs,
+many-core, and Cell processors on the same HPC system. By employing a set of
+unique features, VERTEX provides unprecedented levels of ease-of-use,
+flexibility and scalability for commodity hybrid HPC systems.
